Routine Operations


Routine Operations
How it works...

We come directly to your house - all we need is level parking space and access to your electric supply.  The patient is then examined and weighed and a pre-med injection given, which reduces anxiety and lessens the dose of anaesthetic needed.  Once a little dozy, the patient is taken into the unit and the operation performed.  As soon as this is all over, we will tell you how the operation has been and the patient will be carried back into your house as soon as he/she is awake and alert.

This service is totally geared to provide personal care for your pet and to reduce the stress of undergoing an operation at a distant surgery.

Our Mobile Veterinary Unit is a state-of-the-art, fully fitted, operating theatre.  There is the usual equipment you would expect in a normal theatre, and more :-

  •       Anaesthetic Machine
  •       Operating Table
  •       Dental Unit
  •       Dental Table
  •       Sterile Instrument Kits
  •       Electrocautery
  •       Weighing Scales
  •       Recovery Kennels
  •       Airconditioning
  •       Under-Floor Heating

We can bring the unit to your premises and your pet hardly leaves his own home.

Mercury Vets realises that pets are an important part of the family and with this in mind the team are committed to providing affordable care that doesn’t compromise the household finances. The mobile surgery has lower overhead costs compared to a normal surgery; a saving that is passed on to the client.

The mobile surgery is based in South Dartmoor, servicing an area of approximately 25 miles radius from our base. Travel charges are made according to your postcode.
